    basic clicker training (shaping) - note - for most tricks you can use the word "yes" instead of a clicker and "charge it up" the same way as the clicker

    Eek - prong collars in your sig.

    I used to be supportive of prong collars for some dogs but having learned more about punishment - even escape training and fall out and how much more effective and fast and durable that reward based training is... Even Steve White has changed over - I am not that keen on prong collars any more.

    There's always a better way.

    Thats interesting Hyacith. For me the prong collar works perfectly well & my dog has no problem with it. I had literally tried everything & spent loads of cash on different devices to stop her from pulling on the lead to no avail. I rarely use it for correction anymore. I can imaigine there are some horror stories out there and examples of misue but I like to beleive that used corectly they are effective / no cause for alarm.

    I'll have to look up 'escape training & fall out'
